    I bought indie socks yarn and West Yorkshire Spinners yarn online. The shop owner was super helpful. The delivery was quick, good packaging and eco friendly with a personal thank you message with the delivery order. I was very pleased.

  • Andy Everett

    Looked up on line to visit while in the area. Charming little building tucked away from the main road,. The owner was pleasant and helpful. Good stock of yarn. Wish it was nearer to do some of the classes.
